Hello there, were the Giants! No that’s not actually our last name, but we are just very tall people (Susie @ 6’, Mitch @ 6’5”), hence the giant part.
This is our Design/Lifestyle blog all about our life being tall , with two dogs (We’ve lost two dogs in the last year which makes us sad) , our tall toddler Haverly (Have-er-lee),
and a tiny home which we remodel/ DIY to fit our giant needs large historic colonial a we just purchased in Sept. 2017 with Susie’s mom becoming a multigenerational family!
We also found out we were expecting a little addition to the family coming January 2018, so the first thing on the docket is our little mans nursery!
We’ve done a fair share of crazy spontaneous things over the last 6 years. Like having four dogs, three of which German Shepherds, and then breeding two of those dogs to make 10 puppies. Or purchasing a 1967 Chevy Bel Air station wagon because it was too cool to pass up (check out our custom art print). And almost the exact same color as the Tiny Bungalow!
How about the time I quit my day job to start my own interior design business, only to find out the very same day Mitch started cleaning out the spare bedroom to turn it in to my office, that we were pregnant with our little Haverly Grace (little? I think not for long).
Or, when my mother moved into this tiny 835 sf house with us, and then started a major remodel turning our front porches into a part of our house. Obviously, we do a lot here in this household, and so goes our Giant Life in a
Tiny (for us) House. Now, large historic colonial we actually fit in!
Susie is an Interior Designer here in New England and met Mitch the day before her Umass Amherst graduation. I hate to be all fairytale like but… It was love at first sight. Well, Mitch fell in love with Susie’s German Shepherd at first sight and Susie fell in love with Mitch. The rest is love story history.
Thats not true, how often do you see a 6 foot tall blonde playing stick in a field with a German Shepherd? She wouldn’t have been in that field, at that moment if it weren’t for Monte. -Mitch
We’re not big fans of perfect in this household or in life in general. For us perfect tends to mean nothing gets done – who can actually define perfect and achieve it anyways?– so we like the imperfect because it gets done. Its gotta be beautiful, functional, well used, and imperfect, that the recipe for the design of our home.
Less perfection = Loving life and home
